 “When we were negotiating with the Ukrainian government and the Ukrainian Embassy, they did not keep their promises, and they did nothing to free Anhar. In this situation, we decided to kill the girl,” the commander of a group that abducted the Ukrainian journalist said in an interview with the 1+1 TV Channel.

The rebels also said they planned to execute Kochneva on December 16, but decided to “give her a second chance.”

They also stated that they did not need the money, but they have not announced their demands to the Ukrainian side in the interview.
